So You Want to Talk About Race

Tuesday, Apr 27th 8:00p to 9:00pJoy Wright, Principal of King Philip Middle School, will facilitate a discussion of the NY Times bestseller, "So You Want to Talk About Race" by Ijeoma Oluo. This is a continuation of BET's conversation about antiracism and unconscious bias. "In this breakout book, Ijeoma Oluo explores the complex reality of today's racial landscape--from white privilege and police brutality to systemic discrimination and the Black Lives Matter movement--offering straightforward clarity that readers need to contribute to the dismantling of the racial divide. [T]his book is much-needed and timely. It is more than a primer on racism. It is a comprehensive conversation guide." - National Review of Books Click here for more information and to register.
